Social bookmarking is used by thousands of people to cooperate on project exchanges.
If you are interested in learning how to use social bookmarking at the EFL class, we suggest you reading Godwin’s article in Language Learning and Technology.
In order to get a general overview of what it is all about, you can also see the following presentation released by Commoncrafts in August last year. Like all their presentations it is easy to follow and understand by intermediate students.
If your students’ level is not high enough to follow the presentation, you can get it subtitled in different languages through dotSUB (translations) . I hope you enjoy the video!
I have been surfing the web…as usual. That’s where most of my teaching ideas come from today.
I came across a blog written by a University teacher, Mindy Mc Adams, on Teaching On line Journalism. Her last post, Journalism students’ blogging assignment is really inspiring for the EFL class. She has prepared an assignment for her students which involve 12 weeks’ writing practice. Some ideas that I will follow next year for my Web 2.0. course addressed to intermediate-adavanced students. It is worth reading the comments other colleagues left in order to arrange the task and mark it.
I have just come accross this site with a few sets of transliterations for elementary students practice.
There are at least 40 word categories ranging from alphabet to weather in alphabetical order.
